THE BLACK ROOM MANUSCRIPTS and more updates

Happy to share the cover for the next installment of The Sinister Horror Company’s THE BLACK ROOM MANUSCRIPTS.  I was super excited to get the invite for this one. The story I delivered, “Orson’s Gas n’ Go”, is my little tribute to Tobe Hooper. Psyched to see the roster here on the cover: Paul Tremblay, Adam Nevill, David Moody, Paul Kane, Michael Bray….pretty good group, right?

Not sure of the release day yet, so stay tuned!

Seeing this cover made my dropping off the SCARES THAT CARE convention a little easier.  Sadly, I had to make a financial decision to stay home this summer. I wish I could have come up with a way to be there, but life doesn’t always play by your rules.  I hope all my friends have a blast, and I will try to make it back soon (even if just for Scareyoke!).

I’m still hard at work on FOLLOW ME DOWN, WAITING FOR DARKNESS, and THE WINDOW. I’ll keep you posted on the progress.

Lastly, I just wanted to thank everyone that ordered print copies of BECOMING. Glad to see they all made it safely.  I also just got the new print edition of BLOOD AND RAIN up and ready to order. Jason Lynch’s new cover is amazing and this one is a beauty.

BECOMING Selected for GORE and MORE’s April Group Read.

16806843_10212691863638402_246394853475158253_n

Ken McKinley, head of the Goodreads group GORE and MORE. contacted me about being the guest author of their monthly group read. BECOMING will be April’s featured book, and in honor of such, I have lowered the eBook price to $2.99 for the entire month (starting today). The group read officially starts April 10th, so you should have plenty of time to finish up your current read (unless you’re re-reading IT). Join the group read HERE.

I will be in everyday checking on progress, answering questions, sharing stories and influences, and hopefully chatting it up with a number of you.  If you have a copy already or pick up a discounted one, please come join the group and share your experience.

This story is a bit lighter on the gore, but the characters really shine through. If you’re a fan of movies like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Faculty,  or books like The Tommyknockers or Video Night, I think you’ll have fun with this little creature-feature.

As an author, this is a very rare thing when we can actually be with you as you read. I’m excited. I love this story and hope to see you in the discussions.

Cheers!

-Glenn

Praise for BECOMING

“Oh my…old-fashioned creature feature here, Becoming, is raw horror…” – The Haunted Reading Room

“The vibrations resonating through the words are equal part body snatcher, IT (on a much smaller scale) and Croatoan lore. Becoming is fast paced, constantly amped up, and hella fun.” – The Eyes of Madness

“Rolfe doesn’t hold back when it comes to gore and carnage. Several twists come out during the tale to further heighten the excitement, and bring forth an entirely new level of horror to contemplate.” – Horror After Dark

“Glenn Rolfe has done it again! Another fast-paced read from beginning to end, Becoming, shows that Rolfe is indeed, becoming a force to be reckoned with. I don’t know about you guys, but back in the day (early 70’s) when John Saul, Dean Koontz, and that other guy, Stephen King, were getting started in their horror writing careers, this was the type of story they would write and I would want to read.” – Horror Novel Reviews

“Family plays a vital role in underpinning Becoming‘s thematic nature and the character’s longing for stability in their interpersonal relationships. It’s good stuff!” – Michael Patrick Hicks, author of Revolver 

“I was dying for an old school, creature feature. Well, author, Glenn Rolfe just filled that void for me. As in the manner of the“Body Snatchers” which is given a nod to in Becoming, that’s what you have going on in this mystery a “Hostile Takeover”. It was like watching a movie from late Saturday night, 1970 Chiller Channel. I loved it.” – Robin Lee’s Darkside

Becoming is a creepy horror tale with depth. Rolfe has created characters you can root for, that you will care about. And underneath it all is a subtle yet powerful warning about blindly following others, a message that’s as timeless as it is timely.” – J.H. Moncrieff, author of City of Ghosts and The Bear Who Wouldn’t Leave

“Becoming took me back to the horror books of my teens, to the creature features with cheesy covers that my love of horror was built on…” – Scarlet’s Web

“The monstrous and possessed finale crashes down on a furious wave of murky lake water and nasty green-eyed buggers looking to run the show. It’s quick. It’s bloody.” – Unnerving Magazine

Okay, all that out of the way….Let’s talk about the book.

I started writing the original version of this story back in April of 2013. It was started as a serial novel for the Jukepop Serials website. Somewhere along the way, that version of the story fell apart. I set it aside for a year and a half before picking it back up and  completing a draft on my computer. While doing revisions, I ran into more problems in the story that I just hated. I tried my hand at two different manuscripts, trying like hell to save this creepy story, but they all failed. Frustrated, I gave up.

And then, someone wrote to me that had been reading the original serial version. She asked me what happened to the story. Would it ever see the light of day.

I was inspired by that message. I started writing the story from scratch. I used a few of the old scenes and most of the characters I’d creating, but the story itself changed.  The final result is the fully realized novel that I’d always hoped BECOMING could be.

And major thanks go to Jason Lynch for another amazing cover. And to Erin Sweet-Al Mehairi  for busting her hump (yet again) for me.
